Thanks vsummer and Rena,
I didn't sleep a wink last night knowing that I had to report to this job. I can't continue...my anxiety is killing me. I have 5 am sticks at LTCs'. I don't mind drawing blood, but I do not like drawing it from these patients.
Get this! I have been working there 3wks...no phleb training whatsoever, and they want to release me to go ALONE to draw. Which super failed to tell me at interview.
I must mention I draw 3x a week...so that is 9days of training...only 2 of which I have used to do some sticks! And they are now saying that I will be only working 20 hours or less. Grrrr.
But, sticking isn't difficult...it is the patients. These guys are sooooHARD to draw from! They have poor veins, they scream, hit...pull ya down in bed...curse ya...and I have a needle!!!yikes! I am not ready for this. I don't like working with these patients.
okay, so i went to super...she said she would give me more time. Well, I don't want time. I want out. I went to Human resource dept for transfer. They say I must go to super and director and get permission...and they also said..."you are just new, give it time" Grrrrr. They said that rules are I must work one year before I am able to transfer NOt unless super and dir say ok. Grrr
Then they added "Give it time, we don't want you to have to quit"
I don't want to quit, just a new job. So now, I am crying my eyes out. I need money, I like the hospital, but I am in the wrong job. and noone is taking me seriously. help!
